"CBD and Some Medications are Dangerous Together

If you are on a medication that carries a grapefruit warning, CBD is dangerous, too. Many common medications carry grapefruit warnings, including some corticosteroids used for inflammatory bowel disease, prescriptions for psychiatric conditions like depression and anxiety, medications for high blood pressure, angina, and high cholesterol, and certain immunosuppressants commonly used to prevent rejection of a transplanted organ (see just a few examples from the FDA and Harvard Medical School).

Grapefruit and CBD interfere with a group of enzymes in the body that are instrumental in metabolizing medication. When you consume grapefruit/grapefruit juice or CBD while taking certain medications, your body doesn’t break down the medication properly. In many cases, too much medication stays in the system, increasing both medication levels and side effects. Other times, the medication is blocked from working and the effects are weakened. Essentially, grapefruit and CBD prevent your medication from working properly, either causing toxic levels to accumulate in your body or weakening the effects of your medication so it can’t do what it is prescribed to do. Either one can make you sick and keep you sick while you’re eating grapefruit or taking CBD while on certain medications." --TanyaJPeterson.com
